This Book was supplied to me by Bethany House Publishers for a review in return.
Gregarious Rose Lehman, who’s always the life of the Amish youth singings, is determined to marry the bishop’s son, Reuben Byler–until the handsome Army buddy of her future brother-in-law shows up in Lancaster County. In comparison to Trevor, Reuben seems downright boring. Trevor shares Rose’s sense of fun and adventure, and her easygoing disposition.
When her sister Lila’s buggy is rear-ended and Lila is horribly injured, Rose finds herself with more freedom than she’s ever experienced. Everyone is so concerned about Lila that no one realizes Rose is sneaking out with Trevor. Except for Reuben. But in his usual passive way, he doesn’t confront her, nor does he address the situation with her Dat or anyone else in the district. Rose appreciates Reuben’s discretion, but she also resents it. Part of her relishes the freedom she’s found with Trevor, but the other part of her wishes Reuben would “fight” for her, as much as any Amish man would. Too late, she realizes the foolish choice she’s made. Has she ruined her best chance at love, or is there another path to happiness she just hasn’t seen yet?
This book is the 3rd book in the Neighbors of Lancaster County Series by Leslie Gould. Leslie is one of the GREATEST authors who write about the Amish.
This book is about Rose Lehman, Reuben Byler and also about Rose’s family. This is one of the best books I have ever read. I did not realize this was a series but I was able to catch up with everything as the books goes. Rose has been courting Reuben Byler, who is the Bishop’s son for quite a while. They are planning on being married after Lila, her sister and Zane Beck ties the knot. But things change as they always do, it seems.
Lila has a very bad accident in her buggy and is disabled for a while and she depends on Rose to help her through this time. Then a stranger (Trevor) from Zane’s past shows up and Rose is really enthralled with him and Rose starts sneaking off to see him. She knows it is wrong but it happens. As time goes on, Lila is healing and has to endure to rely on other people to help her, since she is bedridden.
Then Rose does some very bad things with Trevor. I am not going to say anything else so I won’t ruin the story for you all who love Amish. I love this book, I have never read any books by Leslie Gould but believe you me, I will be reading more of her books. She is GREAT. I would definitely suggest this book to my friends and family. Thank you Bethany House for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
